* The [[SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan Jinchuriki]] from Manga/{{Naruto}} do this when they go [[UnstoppableRage berserk]], and Naruto himself in particular is strangely similar to Eva unit 01 in this regard.

* The AffablyEvil Rattigan from ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'', after having a severe VillainousBreakdown, begins running on all fours to get to the protagonist and [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beat the living crap out of him.]]
* ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'': The Beast at first stands and walks like this, but gradually begins to stand and walk upright as the film progresses to show the fact that he is gradually becoming more civilized; and Gaston, who stands and walks upright, until near the end of the film, he reveals his evil self and starts to stand and walk like this.

The curse is also at fault here, because it turned him both in spirit and mind, more and more into an animal.

If done right, this can strike fear into our hearts either by the character doing the stance looking intimidating or by falling into the UncannyValley. However, this often this falls short and strikes {{Narm}} into our hearts.

This may be due to suffering a nervous breakdown and showing an animalistic side. However, this often this falls short and strikes {{Narm}} into our hearts.

* Venusians in ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' all walk like this, understandable given they are essentially intelligent gorillas. Theirs is also a culture of tribal warfare and the hunt.

* This trope is used in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' to convey that someone was dosed up with Nighthowler extract, ranging from Manchas the chauffeur to Emmett Otterton the florist[[spoiler: to even conman Nick Wilde; to be fair, this last one was faked]]. Justified; every character in the film is an animal.

* The animated Kratt Brothers sometimes pose like this on ''WesternAnimation/WildKratts'' when they're taking on or shutting down their creature powers, although they smile cheerfully while doing it so it's clear that they're ''heroically'' feral.
